"I am a philosophy of religions M.A. student at the University of Chicago, and I've been living in the Chicago area for about five years. I work with students for both ACT prep and academic support. As a philosopher, I spend a lot of time breaking down complex ideas into simple, digestible parts; I'm pretty good at it, and I think it makes me a better tutor. I've worked with the whole spectrum of students, from sixth graders through college seniors, including students with disabilities."

"As a tutor, I like to begin with structured strategies for learning concepts and applying them to new tasks. If working on a school or college subject, I will incorporate the students' own classroom texts with my own additional examples or readings.
